In an interviewÂ with Australia’s Channel 9, Terri reveals that despite being heartbroken and lying on the floorÂ “curled up on the floor in a fetal position” she has received much encouragement and support from her eight-year-old daughter Bindi.
Terri stated that Bindi tells her mom, “She says, ‘Mummy, why are you worried? Daddy’s still with us.'”
Mrs. Irwin was floored by the overflowing love from the memorial service.Â
She says, “I knew people would be missing Steve, but the feelings of love and support from Australians was just overwhelming.
“He would have said, ‘Crikey mate, I don’t believe this.’ I love Australia and I’m a lucky woman.
“Just thank you so much. Your thoughts and prayers are really felt and they are going to help me get through–and I will.”
She says, “He said there’s been a boating accident with Steve. Don’t say it, don’t say it, don’t say it. He said it. He said those three words… ‘and he died.’
“I am still at the stage where I think he’s going to come home and it didn’t really happen.”
Barbara Walters also interviewed Terri,Â the emotional chat will air Wednesday on 20/20.Â
